Supporting System for Magnetic-Resonance Guided Focused-Ultrasound Surgery of Liver
In order to apply magnetic-resonance guided focused-ultrasound surgery to liver, the focal point must be pursued in accordance with respiratory motion. To realize this pursuing, a real-time focal-point estimating method which is based on the position coordinate of vascular branch points obtained from MR images considering liver displacement and deformation is proposed and verified.
